EVENTS

Here are some Atomic-y events to keep an eye out for!

________________________________________________

Republican Primaries

DEMOCALYPSE 2016 PRIMARY SEASON
REPUBLICAN DEBATES 1

Thursday, Aug. 6. 9PM-12AM.
Eightbar/Atomic Books. 3620 Falls Rd.
Hampden, Baltimore.

Primary debates season is upon us! And we intend to enjoy the hell out of it.

For the 2016 election, we'll be hosting debate and watching parties at Eightbar.

Up first is the shit-show that is the Republican Primary Debate on FOX. Sure there are nearly 20 Republicans seeking their party's nomination. For this debate, FOX said it's only going to allow 10 candidates on stage - which many argue will have a profound and dramatic effect on the process.

Will FOX cave to the pressure and allow the other Republican candidates on stage? Will they have to all sit at the kids table offstage? Will Trump Trump all? Will Steve Doocy get to moderate? Or maybe the Fox And Friends guy who isn't Steve Doocy?

Let the Hunger Games begin!

RSVP (requested)

Al Burian - Burn Collector 20th

AL BURIAN

Thursday, August 27. 7-9PM.
Atomic Books.
Hampden, Baltimore.

Al Burian, best known as writer/editor of BURN COLLECTOR zine and as a musician with the band MILEMARKER, returns to Atomic Books for a rare North American public appearance.

The former Chicagoan and current Berlin ex-pat was a columnist for PUNK PLANET and more recently has contributed to VICE.com. This year marks the twentieth anniversary of BURN COLLECTOR, and Burian will celebrate by presenting a panoply of zines from all eras of his publishing career, including some new publications and mini-comics heretofore unavailable in the USA.

Al Burian is an engaging, thought-provoking, and fearlessly funny spoken-word performer.

"Dark and smart and weirdly simultaneously heartfelt and cynical and journalistically ambitious, too." – Wells Tower, Everything Ravaged, Everything Burned

"Burian is one of our generation’s great storytellers, a wily and insightful observer of the human condition." – Davy Rothbart, Found magazine

Al Burian began self-publishing in the early 1990’s. He has published numerous books in the USA, including Burn Collector: Collected Stories from 1-9 (2000) and Natural Disaster (2007) as well as the novel Sämtliche Niederlagen (2013) in Germany. His writing and comics have been anthologized by PM Press, Microcosm Publishing, Pegacorn Press, Ventil Verlag, and Stickfigure Publishing.
